For the past 15 years or so I have had my own self-created cookbook where I’ve kept every recipe that was important to me. Since I wanted something where I could store recipes alphabetically, I had decided to use a ring-bound address book where I could continually add new recipes easily.
This worked fine — for 15 years — until I ran out of room. I have no more blank pages and even if I did, I wouldn’t have room for them in the book. I tried to find the exact same Susan Branch address book but it is no longer in print. Then I tried to find another 6-ring address book that would fit these size pages but also had no luck. So then I found a leather-bound, 3-ring agenda book that would do just as well.
They were on sale for 50% off so I bought two in different colors. I’ll use one for collecting cooking recipes and the other for baking recipes.
Having a record of my own recipes that I have created or changed from someone elses has been important to me. I constantly add notes or change things if I discover how to make something better than before.
